Jersey under Nazi Occupation

Postby muckaroon1960 » Mon Jul 31, 2017 5:40 pm

A couple of years ago my wife and I went to Jersey for our holidays and you can't get away from the occupation of the channel islands. We did the usual tour of the island and the underground hospital but what I found fascinating is the original pictures taken at the time of the occupation which I have (sort of) amalgamated with pictures I took whilst there. apologies for the quality.
1. The German Flag Flying from the Town Hall.
2. Troops marching up the Parade.
3.Corbiere point.
4. Opposite Burtons.

I bought a book on Jersey and the occupation to read whilst I was on holiday and when I saw the original pictures decided to take pictures as close as I could to match "then & now". I even got the wife to stand outside the jewellers opposite Burtons :lol:
